Treasuring Grace BookClub Discussion Questions Chapter 1 and 2

Hi Friends,
We hope you have enjoyed the book club thus far. Below are the discussion questions for chapters 1 and 2. If you have gathered your friends together to enjoy the book as a group, begin your discussion!

If you are reading the book for a second time, you'll appreciate the notes from the author in the second "SPOILER ALERT" section of the posting. Here you will find Rob Plumley's discussion questions (same as in the first section) along with his insights ... but be warned! Reading the second section may give away some of the secrets of the book if you haven't discovered the treasures of Treasuring Grace already!

Discussion Questions for Chapter 1 and 2

1)       What is the pin?  If you’ve read to the end, you know what the pin is. 
2)       What do you think the voice of Liz’s grandfather represents?
3)       In Liz’s journal entry at the end of Ch 1, why won’t Grace ever wear the sweatshirt? 
4)       Describe the relationship of Liz and Scott.  Has it changed?  
   
SPOILER ALERT:  QUESTIONS WITH AUTHORS INSIGHTS

1)       What is the pin?  If you’ve read to the end, you know what the pin is.  Look at the back cover of your book.  Do you see how it might be mistaken for an angel’s wings or a butterfly especially if you didn’t want to believe what it was?
2)       What do you think the voice of Liz’s grandfather represents? Throughout the book his voice represents her conscience trying to guide her to the truth.
3)       In Liz’s journal entry at the end of Ch 1, why won’t Grace ever wear the sweatshirt?  As Liz falls asleep, she’s still mourning the loss of Grace.  But notice that she’s deluded in her sleep and has already convinced herself that Grace is alive and needs a swimsuit for the trip.  Scott accepts it as meaningless sleep talk.
4)       Describe the relationship of Liz and Scott.  Has it changed?  They were probably newlyweds for a long time.  Their relationship is still pretty good.  They laugh together.  They love each other.  Liz makes cookies, leaves notes, and recognizes the goodness in Scott.  Scott worries about Liz being taken advantage of on the trip.  He credits her with their wonderful kids.  But there is a gap growing between them.  Neither knows the origin, but both recognize it.  For example, it might have been nice for Liz to wait up for Scott, and maybe she would have if he’d called.
